Immerse yourself in the quiet and tranquility in the Tuscan Maremma hills

Monte Amiata

The ancient volcano Mount Amiata in southern Tuscany is a green mountain covered in forests and home of many picturesque villages. The peak is 1,738 m above sea level and is a destination for sports enthusiasts and snow lovers. In summer you can enjoy trekking and hiking along the trails and protected areas. One can explore the historic town centres and find quality craftsmanship and excellent food and wine. Churches and vicarages testify to an ancient faith rooted in this territory since the dawn of time. The mysticism of the place evokes thoughts and reflections, and it is not accidental that today there is a cultural centre for Buddhist studies here. The Magic Mountain is the setting of legends and rituals brought down to us through a mix of religious and magical folklore.


The Maremma coast

The coast boasts to be one of the most beautiful and unspoilt coasts of Italy. The pine forests and the blue sea, fishing villages and coastal resorts offer excellent opportunities for unforgettable holidays. The Tuscan Archipelago is part of a marine park which has the purpose of conserving and protecting the unique ecosystem. You can enjoy various water sports and scuba diving here.


The Park of the Maremma

The Regional Park of the Maremma Toscana is located south along the state road Aurelia. It is now a protected reminder of the ancient, more wild Maremma .... Here one can admire vast areas of Mediterranean forests and grasslands filled with wild animals, lakes, ponds and marshes where migratory and local birds enjoy optimal conditions of life. To visit this little paradise is a satisfying experience for all nature lovers. It is possible to do trekking and to go on guided tours, also on horseback.


The thermal baths

The baths are a special feature of the territory! Popular since ancient times they were already used by the Etruscans and Romans. Nowadays they have all the modern comforts one needs for pleasant wellness treatments.


Archaeological sites

Many archaeological sites can be found nearby and across the province: from the ancient town of Roselle near Grosseto, the provincial capital, to Vetulonia on the hills overlooking the sea.


Massa Marittima

Another important centre because of its history and ancient mining activities related to the extraction of iron ore.


The tuff area

Going south in the direction of Lazio, Pitigliano, Sovana and Sorano offer opportunities to visit ancient sites rich in Etruscan remains.


The province of Siena

Not far from the Poderino you can reach the Val d'Orcia with its routes through the Crete Senesi, a magnificent area rich in art and culture. The towns of Pienza, San Quirico, and Montalcino are just a few kilometres away, and the city of Siena is famous for its unique history. One of the main events during summer is the Palio, a horse race, which is particularly vibrant and competitive. This ancient race between the districts of the city is deeply felt and experienced by the inhabitants of Siena and it is famous all over the world.
